Maison Bleue enjoyed spectacular media exposure after Scottish PR agency provided the perfect ingredients

Food and drink PR agency helped Maison Bleue restaurant earn media coverage for its refurbishmentRENOWNED restaurant Maison Bleue wanted to make sure its long-awaited refurbishment was the most talked about restaurant event in Edinburgh.

So we artfully combined media relations, a social media hashtag campaign, skilful influencer relations, a masterclass in blogger outreach and eye catching photography and video to tell the full story.

The results were impressive as the Holyrood PR team delivered:

  •  More than 25 media articles in a wide range of influential newspapers, magazines, business titles and news sites.
  • A dedicated blogger event which saw 30 culinary writers sampling the new menu
  • Beautifuly designed media invites for the launch event, attracting more than 20 respected journalists to the party
  • Influencer outreach to ensure 30 concierges from top city hotels also attended the launch event
  • A hashtag campaign across social media which reached more than half a million people

Maison Bleue is dining institution in Edinburgh’s Old Town, as one of the city’s longest-running independent eateries, inspired by North African, Scottish and French cuisine.

However, after an extended closure for the work, it was vital for the business that the reopening was widely talked about to reach both new and existings customers.
